Eastern Wharf will get new lodge, $7 million riverfront properties

The luxury riverfront advancement east of downtown is steadily expanding its footprint along East President St.

The Thompson Savannah, a 193-home hotel with a rooftop bar and farm-to-desk cafe, opened its riverfront doors very last month. The hotel is the first of the Thompson brand to open up in Ga, a luxury hotel chain in 15 towns and owned by Hyatt. Rooms vary from the mid-$200s to $600 a evening, according to Matt Graham, typical manager. 

The midcentury modern décor provides the lodge a casual magnificence. It is really not stuffy, but it really is not affordable. 

The Bar Julian inside the Thompson Savannah offers a panorama view of the Savannah River.
